The announcement was made Thursday.

B.C. Premier David Eby announced the birth of his third child, Gwendolyn Kay Eby, on Thursday afternoon.

In a social media post, Eby said that his new daughter was named after his great grandmother, who was born in the Prairies but moved to Victoria.

“Everyone is happy and healthy,” he wrote.

“Thanks to our obstetrics team, the great nursing and hospital staff for all your amazing work.”

Last week, Eby kicked off an early pre-election campaign. While the provincial election is still months away, he said he wanted to get the ball rolling before taking some time off to spend with his family.

“We’re going to work together, and we’re going to build an amazing province and we’re going to take on those challenges by bringing people together, not by driving them apart, not by picking on different groups,” he said at the rally on June 20.

“We’re going to bring people together to solve these problems by standing up to the bullies and by ensuring that this province continues to prosper, that people can build a good life here.”

The rally fell on the same day that BC United leader Kevin Falcon laid out his framework for economic development, saying he’d balance the province’s books within the first term and reverse the NDP’s record $8 billion provincial deficit.

Meanwhile, BC Conservative leader John Rustad was speaking with the Vancouver Board of Trade in an attempt to lure the anti-NDP business community away from the United party and towards his campaign.
